Intel XTU with i5 7500 ? (PL1 and PL2 question)

If I increase wattage will the CPU run faster or will it be such a small change that it won't be noticeable ?

Given the fact that it's a locked CPU and the issue is rather that the CPU runs at full speed (Kaby Lake quad core was sort of the last generation that didn't have such PL1 and PL2 discrepancies) without being able to being clocked higher, even with a Z board, you won't see any advantages at all playing around in there.

Hi. I have i5 7500 in my desktop and I recently tried to run XTU. To my surprise some of the dials are not locked up. I have aftermarket cooler (I mainly switched from the stock because of the noise but I'm sure it can handle more heat now) So my question is: what exactly does Turbo Boost Power Max and Short Power Max ? Does it counts as overclocking ? If I increase wattage will the CPU run faster or will it be such a small change that it won't be noticeable ? I have B250 chipset so the overclocking in general is a no-go for me. But can I increase the speed at least this way ? Only overclocking expirience I have is an old GPU that I used to have in my build. - I overclocked it somehow and tried Alien Isolation on it - green glitches and crashed the game. Surprisingly the card still works to this day (GT 730 btw). Thank you in advance. 😃obrazek.thumb.png.fcd3cdf9a8c18433d3ef42eb78608380.png

It doesnt count as overclocking, but it wont affect performance if your CPU doesnt hit the old power limits (which is what they really are) in the first place.
